Job Description

Your job is more than a job.

There's so much more to being a Phlebotomist than drawing blood. When it comes to pathogen exposure, inserting needles into tiny veins, and anxious patients anticipating pain, you set yourself apart with a steady skillset and mindset that are five stars.

Phlebotomy is where the technical part of your brain leans on the emotional side as you do a mental high when your patient says, "I didn't even feel that". Now that's what we're talking about. We love that little something extra you dedicate to every patient, every "stick". You make ordinary, extraordinary.

Your experiences, your knowledge, your skills, your empathy, your compassion, your personality, all of it adds up to you. And we're excited to get to know you and find out what you'll bring to this essential diagnostic role.
